In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday. The idea is to take 3 photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment, by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?
Have a peek at what others have found this week:

This week my noticing was around the crops of some of the local farms. There are 3 major, but not exclusive crops grown in the area; corn, soy & winter wheat. Most of the fields are rotated in crop production year after year; corn, next year soy, next year winter winter & then back to corn. They all grow at different times & all have different weather requirements. Corn loves heat & humidity with lots of rain. Last year it was a horrible year for corn, lots of heat & humidity but no rain. Most of the soy & corn are grown for livestock feed.
Corn, you can almost hear it growing, so far it's been a perfect year for it: (I think this is such a gorgeous farm).
Winter wheat is just about ready to harvest. This year there are fields & fields of this crop.
And soy, which always seems to be like the youngest child of a large family, it has to grow through the stubble of last year's corn crop.
